Trend Micro and VCE expand strategic alliance to offer easy and seamless solution to secure hybrid cloudStrengthened partnership addresses organisations’ need to secure their cloud environments built on VCE solutions

AUCKLAND, 11 November 2015 - Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in security software solutions, today announced it has joined the VCE Select Program, to bundle Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ with the VCE converged and hyper-converged infrastructure systems, offering customers and partners security solutions for easier consumption. Trend Micro Deep Security has received both Vblock™ Ready and VCE Validation Ready™ certifications. With this step, VCE and Trend Micro significantly deepen their alliance and commitment to customers and partners to strengthen cloud security.

"By joining the VCE Select Program, VCE and Trend Micro can offer customers a seamless experience securing their cloud and data centres, allowing them to focus on business objectives rather than infrastructure compliance and security," said Sasha Pavlovic, director of cloud and data centre security, Trend Micro Asia Pacific. "The close alliance with VCE confirms our commitment to deliver best-in-class security solutions to our customers as they are adopting our joint solution to secure their enterprise workloads."

"Customers are increasingly looking for tested and validated security solutions for private and public clouds that compliment VCE converged infrastructure solutions," said Rael Morris, director technology alliances, VCE. "We work with Trend Micro because of their leadership and commitment to cloud and data centre security and years of joint innovation with VCE, VMware, SAP, and other market leaders."

The combination of VCE converged infrastructure solutions with Trend Micro Deep Security provides customers and partners with many advantages, including:

Certified as the first Vblock Ready content security solution in 2012, Deep Security provides market-leading security for physical, virtual and cloud servers from a single integrated platform. This tightly integrated security solution features both system and network security controls for instant-on protection of virtual workloads. It defends against network threats with host Firewall and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and immediately protects against vulnerabilities such as Shellshock and Heartbleed. Additionally, it simplifies and automates application lifecycle from deployment to decommissioning, with automated security controls.

VCE Vblock Systems are a converged infrastructure that can be rapidly deployed and dramatically lower IT costs because they are pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated IT infrastructures that combine best-in-class compute, network, storage, data protection and virtualisation technologies from Cisco, EMC and VMware, delivered as a single product with unified support. The VCE VxRack Systems are a hyper-converged infrastructure comprised of self-contained units of servers and networking leveraging software-define storage that are well-suited for the rapid growth of next-generation applications – enabling support of a growing number of use cases with built-in resiliency and less stringent availability and performance requirements on infrastructure.
